Windows 10 App Essentials 19.06.1 #addonrelease

 

Hi all,

 

Windows 10 App Essentials 19.06.1 is on its way. This one brings localization updates, adds logging for UIA text change event, expands information spoken in Settings app, and other small things.

 

Important: for people subscribed to development channel for this add-on, there will be a corresponding snapshot for you with two major differences from 19.06.1:

 

  1. NVDA 2019.1 will be set as minimum version for a select few snapshots. In other words, not every snapshot will install on NVDA 2018.4. Support for NvDA 2018.4 will be removed a few days after NVDA 2019.2 is released.
  2. For people on Version 1903 (May 2019 Update), the ability to let NVDA announce volume and brightness changes will be restricted to File Explorer being focused in order to make the experience similar to recent NVDA development snapshots. This change won’t show up for stable users for a while.

 

One more thing: a development snapshot in June will require Version 1809 (October 2018 Update) in order to test compatibility. Version 1803 (April 2018 Update) will be dropped from this add-on later in 2019 (tentatively by end of July but subject to change) as for maintenance policy for this add-on.

 

Cheers,

Joseph
